Protester died from heart failure, not wounds: Hospital

Rajavithi Hospital on Wednesday said Anon Thaidee, 65, who was wounded in a bomb attack near an anti-government rally site last month, died of heart failure, not from the injuries obtained from the blast.

The hospital director Dr Udom Chaowarin said Anon, who suffered from shrapnel wounds to the head, received treatment and was well on the way to recovery when he was discharged.

However he was rushed back to the hospital earlier this week for chest pain. A CT scan revealed a pulmonary embolism, an often fatal condition.
